Frequently Asked Questions

Every 3-metre square has been given a unique combination of three words: a what3words address. Anyone can find their what3words location in the free what3words app. Just enter your street address, and then move the map until you find the exact 3m2 location you want to use.

Street addresses often don’t guide drivers to the right entrance, and postcodes can cover huge areas (especially in rural locations). What3words pinpoints the exact 3-metre square location so your drivers know exactly where to go without the need for additional directions. A what3words address can be especially useful for locations in business parks, construction sites and other hard-to-find places.

A what3words address works at ground level. Additional information will be needed for multi-storey buildings, such as the floor number. Where what3words comes into its own for multi-storey buildings is where there are multiple entrances – and you can provide the exact coordinates for the right entrance.

Plan less, deliver more.

Slash your route planning time, cut your delivery costs and exceed your customer’s expectations.
